1001 Nights was the December 2012 release of Big Finish Productions' Doctor Who monthly range.

Aside from the title story, which is also the framing narrative, it contains the following stories:

Publisher's summary Edit

A long time ago, two travellers came from far away...

In the perfumed palace of an omnipotent Sultan, a girl must tell stories to keep the man she cares about from a cruel and horrible death. She spins tales of distant lands she has visited with a mysterious traveller, of fabulous creatures and fantastic adventures – and of a blue box that can travel in time and space.

Meanwhile, in the dungeons below the throne room, there lurks a secret which will bring down the kingdom – perhaps even the universe.

Can the Doctor and Nyssa escape from this never-ending story before the final chapter spells their end?

Notes Edit

  • This anthology was recorded on 7 and 8 August 2012.
